May 26, 2016 - Older Bordeaux Evening with Friends (Les Nomades - Chicago IL): Base neck fill. Ripe fruit throughout, slightly sweet, nicely fresh. I like the concentration best here, with moderate acidity, length and nuance, but certainly a start for the vintage.

April 15, 2016 - Wonderful condition - flawless. Fully integrated, some fruit, small amount of cedar / oak, small amount of barnyard. Maybe it needs something a little more distinct to be a 100 for me? Or should a wine with absolutely no flaws be 100. It was a joy to contemplate. :)

December 20, 2015 - Cheval Blanc Vertical Tasting (Old Swiss House, Lucerne, Switzerland): Clear red with brick color at the edges. Ripe red notes (figs and raspberries). Nice sweetness, floral notes and good length. Acidity is a bit too high. Overall still a nicely balanced wine with a solid backbone. For sure one of the better 1976s. For people born that year (such as me) a good buy especially when found in large formats, as the 0.75 are already quite mature.

August 22, 2015 - Perfect looking bottle with a fill well into the neck. Cork came out easily. Outstanding nose of mature red and black fruit, violets, herbs and earth. Soft, fully open and beautiful on the palate. The violet and floral notes really came out with time. Wonderful ripeness. Medium++ finish. Perfect right now. Glad I have 23 more bottles....
